Demolition by the hour.

The play by play.

9 a.m. – refrigerator gets stuck in doorway.


10 a.m. – I leave for a dentist appointment. Things still look less messy than I expected.

12:00 p.m. – I arrive back from the dentist, and Patrick emerges after army-crawling through the crawl space to turn off the water. patrick kitchen reno

2:30 p.m. – we’d planned on leaving the cabinets where they were… but apparently they were so out of whack that this happened

cabinets everywhere

5:15 p.m. – just got home from lacrosse practice, and thank goodness … cabinets are back on walls! It’s almost time for the sink to go in!





10:31 AM – Patrick and his dad are jack-hammering their way through layers upon layers of flooring. About 1/3 of the way done!


12:12 p.m. – Lunch break! The floor is about 2/3 of the way demolished… And Patrick and his dad are getting the hang of it. It’s starting to look like a blank slate!



1:30 p.m. – tile is GONE!!!! And I’m outside sanding cabinet doors…



DAY THREE: Sunday is a day of rest people.


9:30 a.m. – Counter top folks are here templating for our new marble slabAnd a sneak peek of our sink!!
